Colorado Springs Dental Office Provides Tooth Extractions to Protect Your Smile

Tooth extractions are the last resort when it comes to dental care, but they may be your best option if your natural tooth is irrevocably damaged beyond repair. With the help of our Colorado Springs dental office, we'll be able to safely and efficiency extract the tooth and work towards protecting and/or repairing your smile. Learn more about the necessities of tooth extractions and what to do next.


When Do You Need a Tooth Extraction? 

At Gleneagle Dental, we’ll ensure that you know exactly what to expect if we recommend a tooth extraction. You’ll also learn about how we came to this decision. Here are some of the most common reasons when tooth extractions become necessary:  


• Severe tooth infection or decay that can make it impossible or costly to repair the tooth 

• Advanced gum disease that can affect surrounding teeth if there’s no extraction 

• A tooth extraction is needed if it’s blocking another tooth 

• Wisdom teeth that need extraction 


Regardless of the reason, you’ll be well-informed before, during, and after the procedure. We’ll also provide options to restore your smile, such as partial dentures or dental implants.  


What Can You Expect?  

Tooth extractions are quick – they can take a matter of minutes. Then, an anesthetic is applied to numb the area, so you don’t feel any pain. Instead, you’ll only feel pressure when the tooth is removed.  


A small amount of bleeding once the tooth is removed is normal, and gauze will be applied to the area. It’s also normal for the area to bleed for about 24 hours and begin to taper off after that.  


When it comes to post-procedure recommendations and instructions, we’ll provide you with everything you need.  


If you believe that you’re in need of a tooth extraction or want to learn about more of your options, please call Gleneagle Dental at (719) 488-2222. Our experienced professionals will give you all the information you need and help you feel confident in your dental health.
